Alright, so I'm going to a prepschool in a few weeks and it requires you to bring a laptop. I'm an avid gamer so I'm freaking out about being able to play games on it like Crysis or Mass Effect and at the very least Counter Strike (Which I play typically anyways ). My budget is in the $1500 range but I'll go up to $2000 if it's needed. I really don't care about size, weight, etc. Right now all I have for ideas is the Alienware M17 for $1850 :
•Dual 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4850 - CrossFireX™
•Intel® Core™2 T9600 2.8GHz (6MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
•3GB Dual Channel DDR3 SO-DIMM at 1066MHz – 1 x 2048MB + 1 x 1024MB
the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q706 for $1900 (Which Tohshiba removed from their site for some reason so I don't know if it's still out)
• 1GB SLI GeForce 9800M GTS video cards
• 4GB of 1066 MHz RAM
• 2.26GHz P8400
and the Dell Studio 16 XPS at $1500 which i would take if i works
• Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T9550 (6MB cache/2.66GHz/1066Mhz FSB)
• ATI Mobility RADEON™ HD 4670 – 1GB
• 6GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1067MHz (2 Dimms)
But like I said I'm absolutely clueless and would greatly appreciate any advice or tips !
As I said I would perfer something under $1700, around $1500. Crysis, Mass Effect and Counter Strike. (In the second and third sentence (<.<)) Lost wandering thanks I feel the same way to, I hate Alienware as well (never got a good vibe from them) but they did seem to have the best offer. I will check out the links though.
